Question Profesional online directory

Hello everyone, newbie here with a question.

Anyone know of an online directory of digital retouching companies? I've done a bit of searching and have been coming up blank with the exception of PDNOnline. Is there such a thing? It seems that there are quite a few retouching companies out there in this big bad world, but I can't seem to find them. BTW, I work at a retouching company and we aren't listed anywhere either, although we're less than 2 years old. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Oh, and are the majority of you freelancers or do you work for someone?

I'd had the idea for something like this when I set up our Links section, with areas for various specialities. A few people participated, but not enough to make it a genuine directory (yet).

Doug,

I think it would still be a good idea in some respects. It may be a good way to get additional sponsors for the site as well. Perhaps at first you could offer free banner links, or low, introductory rates to retouching companies, or labs etc. I'm only throwing things out there off the top of my head mind you.

I'm not sure if I can link directly, but this is the sort of thing I was searching for. Here @ PDN . It seemed to be a good source of info, but it was the only one I could find and I know that there are many many more that are not listed on their pages. I'm sure they pay to have themselves included.

Because our field is so specialized, I doubt it would feasible to publish such a directory (in print). Then again, I could be wrong. However, there are professional graphic arts annuals that have "Retouching" categories. One such example is "The Workbook."

Forgive me for being an ass, but photo restoration is low brow retouching. So is this board. Nothing to see here, moving along. Flame away, but I won't be reading it.

Don't know if you can get it in the states but try the Creative Handbook it lists all Retouching Houses, Ad Agencies etc.

Laters Lex.
